Americans are traveling less than they did before the Great Recession, according to data collected by the Consumer Expenditure Survey and analyzed in a Monthly Labor Review article. The number of domestic trips taken by American households fell 14 percent between 2006 and 2013, from 230 million to 198 million. The number of international trips fell 25 percent during those years, from 17 million to 13 million. Neither domestic nor international travel show recovery from the Great Recession.
